So many people focus on change form the outside in, and Premier Fitness Camp is all about full life transformation from the inside out, which comes from three important pillars that are the foundation of our program—psychology, nutrition and fitness.

The Nation’s top live-in fitness and weight loss resort, PFC Fitness Camp at Omni La Costa Resort and Spa released the world premier of the program's most emotional and inspiring weight loss success story yet.

Following the success of A&E’s extreme weight gain to weight loss documentary, Fit2Fat2Fit, PFC Fitness Camp captured the story behind contestants Ray Stewart and JJ Peterson who kicked off their 32-week weight loss journey together at PFC Fitness Camp.

A personal trainer by trade, JJ intentionally gained 61 pounds of fat over a period of 16 weeks of the show, ditching his healthy diet for donuts and milkshakes to experience the real struggles of his client, Ray—essentially taking a walk in Ray’s shoes, emotionally and physically, before losing the weight together. JJ was even monitored with a Fitbit during is no-exercise, eat-everything phase to ensure he did not even exceed 2,000 steps per day.

From the extreme low point both Ray and JJ experienced together, the pair knew they needed an intense mind-body transformation to ensure the success of their weight loss journey. Enter the only clinically proven weight loss program with university validation, PFC Fitness Camp.

"When JJ approached us about Ray’s story, it was clear he did not want Ray to have results just for the TV show. He truly cared about Ray’s long-term success and wanted Ray to have a full life transformation,” states PFC Managing Director, Zach Cutler.

“So many people focus on change form the outside in, and Premier Fitness Camp is all about full life transformation from the inside out, which comes from three important pillars that are the foundation of our program—psychology, nutrition and fitness, otherwise known as THINK. EAT. MOVE."

Ray and JJ spent a week at PFC Fitness Camp, immersed in behavioral health from the guidance of the highly acclaimed, Michael Mantell, Ph.D and supported by PFC’s top certified fitness coaches and nutritionist for a full mind-body boot camp to form lasting, healthy habits and prepare the two for a lifetime of optimal health. Watch their inspiring video to see how the two lost a total of 211 pounds that all started in San Diego at PFC Fitness Camp.
